> I am the cheerleader and the poster-girl on this board for Seroquel. I've been cursed with sleeping problems since I was a teenager and it's effected my whole life...falling asleep in class, being groggy and confused at work, wandering around the house at 3am like a sad ghost. I could sleep for only 2 or 3 hours at a time until, after a week or so, I was so exhausted that I would fall in bed and sleep for 20 hours. Then it would start all over again.

I agree with Gracie that Seroquel can be a very good drug, but for a different reason. I am hypersomniac but I was given Seroquel to quell suicidal tendencies, morbid and distorted thinking that is symptomatic of my depression ad PTSD. I too was a bit freaked out when I was given an antipsychotic primarily used for schizophrenia (my Dad was severly schizophrenic). Although it makes me a bit groggy in the AM, I notice I will go a full day without a dark thought, flashback or suicidal idealization. In this respect, it has worked well for me.
